Nanton is our coffee stop town when we’re out exploring Southern Alberta. In the space of one block in this tiny town there are at least three decent cafes, an ice cream shop, and old fashioned candy store. It also seems to be a popular Sunday afternoon destination for motorcyclists and churchgoers.
On one particular journey to and from Fort MacLeod our stop included pie and italian soda from the Wild Thyme Cafe. We’re normally very wary of cafe food (allergies), however the pies here are baked in the cafe and the waitress could list off every single ingredient.
La Niña was the official pie taster and delightedly exclaimed that it was the best pumpkin pie ever before eating every last crumb from her plate.
